Far right rejoices after court frees Tommy Robinson over legal errors

Activist Tommy Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court on May 25, 2018 - but the world only learnt about it several days later.

One of them told Sky News the announcement was "good news and bad news" because Mr Robinson will face a re-hearing into the allegation at a later date.

The former English Defence League leader had been behind bars for two months for filming defendants and discussing an ongoing Leeds Crown Court criminal trial live on Facebook.

He was sentenced to 10 months for contempt of court and given a further three months for breaching the terms of a previous suspended sentence. The Court of Appeal found that the legal process had not been properly followed when Mr Robinson was convicted.

He is not allowed to go within 400m of Leeds Crown Court until the re-hearing.

Robinson, 35, whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, said outside prison: "I want to thank the British public for all their support".

In the decision read out in court, the judges revealed the background to the case, much of which had previously been subject to reporting restrictions.

"During his live-streaming the appellant had referred to the supposed religion of the defendants, the ethnicity of the alleged victims, the costs of the prosecutions, and (he) questioned why publication was prohibited", Burnett said.
